Your Tile Services in Edmonton: Bossio Stone Imports
Most of the Italian tile we import is porcelain, which is known for its exceptional resistance to wear, staining, water absorption and scratching. Because porcelain is so durable and impervious, you can use it with confidence in high traffic residential or commercial areas. Full-bodied porcelains (tiles that have their colour and pattern throughout) are especially wear resistant. Not only is porcelain durable, it comes in an almost endless array of colours, finishes and textures. There are even porcelain lines that look like hardwood – an ideal solution if you love hardwood, but perhaps have large dogs!
At Bossio Stone, we also carry natural slate, marble, travertine and granite tile, as well as several kinds of glass and mosaic backsplash accents. When customers visit our showroom, we’re happy to help them choose not only tile that will give them the look they’re after, but will also meet their expectations for wear, maintenance and cost. In addition to the tile lines that we import, we work with most major Edmonton area wholesale tile suppliers. This allows us to supply our customers with just about anything that’s available on the market today.
Are you a designer who has a specific colour or style in mind? A renovator who would like to have a beautiful showroom to send clients to, knowing they’ll get professional advice?

Our qualified interior designers are available to help you with your choices and to arrange installation, if required.
Many of our lines are stocked right here in our warehouse, and are available for pick up or delivery. We also carry Fila products for tile, stone and grout sealing, cleaning and maintenance.

Freetime is one of our most popular multipurpose tiles. With five sizes ranging from 2 x 2 mosaic to 18 x 18, you’re only limited by your imagination when you choose one of the five colours of Freetime tile for your floor, walls or backsplash.
Depending on the colour, Eternity is available in flat tile sizes ranging from 6 x 6 up to 12 x 24 and 18 x 18. Cut, stacked strips of Eternity Almond or Multicolour, called Muretto, are sold in solid 12″ x 24″ sections. Muretto strips make a beautiful backsplash, without any of the maintenance common to similar looking natural stone backsplashes. Muretto strips are also popular for fireplace surrounds.
Imported from Italy, we’ve used Glamour Chocolate 12 x 24 and 24 x 24 on our showroom floor. This uniquely patterned durable porcelain is available in five colours.
This elegant large scale floor tile is another we’ve used on our own showroom floor. Maxima is available in five different colours, and is manufactured to look like real stone. Some of the benefits of installing, for example, Maxima Calcutta (which looks like natural marble) are that this porcelain tile is significantly more durable and less prone to scratching and staining than marble. Two of the Maxima colours have a four piece Rosone which, at 48” x 48”, can be a bold design focal point in a dining room or foyer.
Natif Zen Zero and Natif Ginepro are made to resemble wood flooring. Some customers choose them because they love the look of wood, but have very ‘lived-in’ homes that include busy children and pets. The durable scratch-resistance and minimal absorbency of porcelain is a good fit for them, while still offering them the appearance of hardwood.
Designed to look like natural slate, the Primitive Series will give your décor the feel of natural stone, while giving you a floor or wall tile that’s a breeze to maintain. Primitive is an Italian porcelain tile that’s available in three sizes and four slate-like colours.
One of our all-time best sellers, the Riverstone Series is an elegant pairing of durable Italian porcelain with the look of real stone. In four colours, and with sizes ranging from 6 ½” x 6 ½” up to 20” x 20”, creative homeowners and designers can incorporate Riverstone into both floors and backsplash, or possibly even create borders or feature areas on walls or floors using different sizes. Our staff and designers are always happy to help you come up with beautiful solutions for your home.
